Plastics company preps Lebanon growth

Italian plastics manufacturer SO.F.TER says it plans to more than double the output at its new Lebanon plant in 2015. The company said last year it would build its $20 million U.S. headquarters on State Route 109, when it said it planned to grow the facility. But the company's announcement today that it has started local production also says it will move forward next year to double capacity to 100 million pounds and add thermoplastic elastomers to its lines. The long term for SO.F.TER, which has global sales of $320 million, is to produce 200 million pounds and employ 200 in Lebanon.

The lead singer of Better Than Ezra is leading a group that's organizing a two-day acoustic music and food festival at Franklin's Harlinsdale Farm complex. The goal is to feature artists from a number of genres and draw about 15,000 people. Michael Ackley at Franklin Homepage has more info.

Ward 4 Alderman Margaret Martin asked if the event will turn into another music festival like Bonaroo. Griffin responded by saying that "the 'B' word is a bad word for us."

"This Franklin festival skews older," he said. "We're not going for kids. There is no camping. This will suit the high-end atmosphere of Franklin."
